For the June Full Moon exchange on the Little Alters Project that Peg's Wildhair Studio is hosting, I sculpted this wee art doll from polymer as I continue to work with and meditate upon Ganesh. He is known as the Remover of Obstacles with the head of an elephant and body of a man. His legend is quite interesting.
In this 4" tall version of him for the Little Alters 2013 project, he is happy, at peace and holding the rudraksha seeds, in a golden offering bowl, their natural blue form he was given by as an offering from visitors who wish his help. Thanks to all the instagrammers who visited the Kauai Hindu Monistary and posted all the gorgeous photos. Without those, I wouldn't know of the rudraksha seed existence or know that there were such brilliant blue pods out there!
May Ganesh bless all who see him and help the Lynn H. who is getting him in this full moon's exchange.
Light and Love,~GG~
